Flower from the Andes


The birds in the sky sing and celebrate

The blissful birth of a flower girl.


The heavens couldn’t help but cry “Hurray!

In the midst of such an explosive day.


She’s the sun embracing the Andes

And the life-giving blood of her valleys.


She’s the blue, red, and yellow

Of all the rainbows in the meadow.


She’s the peace of a summer day,

Reason enough for love in more than one thousand ways.
